Divorce and Dissolution

In the state of California, either party to a marriage may file for divorce. Such dissolution of marriage restores the prior husband and wife to single status in the law. Irreconcilable differences and incurable insanity are each grounds for divorce, summary dissolution of a marriage or a binding legal separation. An annulment is a legal judgment that no legal marriage was entered into and requirements are much more stringent for such a petition.

A divorce may be contested or uncontested. A contested divorce is one in which the parties disagree over the terms of dissolution, such as child custody, visitation, child support, post separation support, spousal support, alimony or division of marital assets.

 

There may be disputes over which assets and/or debts should be attributed as marital and which are separately owned by spouses during the marriage. A contested divorce may require mediation and/or court hearings to resolve.
